coolant filter options

Can anyone explain why you run a coolant filter parallel to the cooling system and not inline like running the heater hose through the filter. The reason I ask is I'm going to be replacing the oil cooler end egr cooler in my 03 and figured it might be a good time to go ahead and get rid of the ford gold coolant and add a filter.

If you run it inline and the filter clogs, your coolant stream stops. Then all kinds of bad crap can happen
